officer bob baer. you have new reporting on the status of the fbi investigation. what can you tell us? >> anderson, it's pretty extraordinary and astonishing to me who's worked with the fbi over a decade. you understand when this happens and the fbi opens an investigation one of the first things they do is go to the state department and say please request permission for us to enter this country, libya, get to the crime scene, benghazi. please request that we have the security and ability to do that and that we will have access to the crime scene and have access to any individuals that libya takes into custody. while the fbi made that request to the state department. what we found out today from senior law enforcement officials while the fbi made it to tripoli they have never made it to benghazi. >> they haven't been on the ground in benghazi? >> they have not. it was taking so long to get permission to go to tripoli, the fbi deployed their personnel to a location in the region so they would be closer. they have conducted interviews of the state department and u.s. government personnel
-year-old kathrine davis was found dead inside the home. autopsies are planned today. and the fbi has released video from a robbery that happened last thursday at a saks fifth avenue store in florida. ormed the floor, ordered obbers peop on the floor and took ney from some of the registers. they also knocked over a jewel ca took aag full of jewelry. fortunately, no one was hurt. $5,000 reward is now b offered for information leadi the arrest and conviction. and the king of rock & roll has been dethroned at least when it cometo one of his long, long standing cords billboard magazine says elvis presley is no longer the artist with the most billboard hot 100 hits. guess who that goes to? well, that title now goes to rapper lil' wayne. he broke the record with games celebration that hit the list at number 82. and that gives him 109 entries. one more than elvis' record of 108. that record has been presley's since 1958. lil' wayne now dethroning -- >> keep saying little -- >> so i'm not as hip as you. >> no. you're a rap artist. it's lil' wayne. not little. >> how do you say? >> l-i-l. >> s
to help libyans. gregg: greg palkot joins me by telephone in tripoli. we understand, greg, the fbi is still there on the ground. what is the latest you're hearing? >> reporter: that's right, gregg. we spoke with an official that fbi agent remain in tripoli. we don't have any confirmation that they have yet to reach the scene of the killing that killed ambassador stevens and others in ben dwauz gazi. it is not especially safe. but there are worry that is the crime scene 10 days later could be contaminated. a marine anti-terror fast response team remains in tripoli as well. the embassy is well-guarded amid other questions being raised the night of the killing u.s. military teams were not sent in fast enough and questions about inadequate security at the consulate and maybe not enough attention paid to other attacks happening in benghazi over the past couple months. we've been hearing in our time on the ground here, at least to some degree, the militants, militia very much in charge in benghazi. gregg? gregg: we're hearing there is a protest and counter protest in libya. what can you
. "helping." f.b.i. and others are on the ground in the early stages of the investigation. top priority here? find out whether the strike on the consulate was a planned assault by terrorists rather than a rampageing mob angry other antimuslim video. catherine is in washington, dc, first on the reported arrests. >> this afternoon, the intelligence community is trying to knock down the report. this question was put to the state department. i saw the press reports before i came down. i was not able to confirm them. obviously, it would be a good thing if we are moving forward on this. >> the state department confirmed the investigation in benghazi at consulate is led by the libyan authorities with f.b.i. agents on the ground because american citizens are dead. at least publicly the state department remains cautious when it comes to assigning blame. fox is told that two groups are part of the universe of suspects in the libyan attacks affiliated with al qaeda, the affiliate in north africa. one is the lifg, the libyan islamic fighting group banned under qadaffi and the other is a group, too, that
in situation. both pittsburgh and fbi s.w.a.t. teams are on the scene of a hostage situation taking place on the 16th floor of a downtown highway. the cw brightsman company we understand is the setting for all of this. an ex-military man we're told walked into that office this morning where apparently he used to work. asked for one individual in particular and has now taken hostages. it is not absolutely clear that the one person that he named is the person who is being held hostage. there might be as many as two hostages. we're told no shots have been fired. unknown weaponry involved and police say they have a visual wall on the suspect the they know who he is. they have brought his mother to the building to help deal with negotiations but so far the hostage situation continues in downtown pittsburgh on the 16th floor of a high-rise. no shots fired so far. we'll keep you updated as the hour rolls along. >> we will. brand new stories and more breaking news. jon: good to see you, arthel the white house is it calling the assault in lib libya a terrorist attack. what is the political fallout
for two days. he was convicted in 2009 for bank fraud. we're told the fbi has contacted him because of possible threats against him. we're told he's not under investigation right now. >> brian, thanks very much. brian todd working this story. less than two years ago we watched as these kinds of protests spread across north africa and the middle east. protesters fighting to overthrow dictators and regimes. fast forward to today. we're seeing these same countries erupt in violence anti-american protests. let's bring in bobby gauche, editor at large for "time" magazine. he wrote this week's cover story "the agents of outrage," an excellent article, bobby. thanks very much. let me read a line from your article. the arab spring replaced the harsh order of hated dictators with a flowering of neophyte democracies. but these governments with weak mandates evershifting loyalties and poor security forces have made the region a more chaotic and unstable place, a place more susceptible than ever to rogue provocateurs fo meanting violent upheavals usually in the name of faith. the bottom line qu
that are on the ground in libya. there is one u.s. navy destroyer off of the coast and another coming there, too and f.b.i. agents and as well a stepped up drone surveillance. we are talking about a terror manhunt in libya. in addition to the motivator of that film made in the u.s., it could be a complex organization to take out u.s. officials with an al-qaida link. we are looking at the video we have seen coming from the who is citing that the al-qaida number two was killed by the u.s. and called on action from the u.s.. a complex and fluid situation, back to you. >> gretchen: thank you. >> brian: how does the united states respond? former director of national intelience who worked in the worst situation . ambassador, welcome. what is our best next step first of course in libya? >> let mow say that chris stevens, we lost an exemptary diplomat. he was the kind of example of expeditionary diplomacy that characterized our hot spots . we will mourn his loss and miss him greatly. as far as the next step, we have to wait this situation out a bit and at least get past the friday prayers tomorrow and see how tha
back from how serious that is. again, the fbi will go in there and it is not their terrain. and it is it a lot of different characters and it is it a dangerous situation and it is difficult for them and they will have to rely on the government in which critics say is not quick enough to respond to the islamicist threat. >> stay safe out there. and now the latest from egypt. leland? >> good morning, judge. 3:00 a.m. right here right now. and you might describe it as a intense calm in tahir square. hundreds if not thousands of riot police trying to make sure there would be no problems after violent protest. overnight last night. protestors and the riot police a lot of tear gas filled the street and the spell of tear gas and rubber bullets and one person killed boy a shot gun place fired by the security forces. they numbered in the thousands and carrying pictures of osama bin laden and chanting. obama, we are all osama. and carrying that black islamic flag that is on the un embassy. it is it part of the protest. al-qaida and the arabian peninsula praised the attacks on the u.s
the fbi has a team on the ground in libya to identify suspects, gather evidence and assess whether a prosecution is possible. as fox news was first to report the targeted killing of ambassador coordinated and may be linked to a group called lifg or the libyan fighting islamic group. it was banned by the former dictator muammar qaddafi because of its support for al qaeda. the head of the house intelligence committee is one of few members of congress fully briefed on the attacks and the investigation. >> even though we can't say for sure this was an al qaeda event yet it certainly fits the profile, it fits the signature, the precision, the way that they carried out this particular attack, certainly would make it likely that it is an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> reporter: this morning the libyan foreign ministry saying that they believe a group called ansar al sharia was involved. they support the extremist goal of imposing strict sharia law in that country. jenna: ongoinging investigation as we learn more about libya. what about cairo? what are we learning about the investiga
to join in the hunt for them. the fbi is also investigating. as we said at the top of the program, american warships armed with cruise missiles have begun steaming closer to libya. a marine unit is headed to tripoli to protect the embassy there and other forces may be called to beef up protection globally. >> we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats. i have directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world, and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> well, later today after that speech, on the cbs evening news, president obama also had sharp words for mitt romney, who's come under fire from democrats and some republicans for his statements lashing out at the obama administration's response to the attacks in benghazi and cairo. statements that whatever you believe about american foreign policy are simply not factual. we'll get to the battle over that in a moment. first we do want to focus on the attacks themselves, what happened last night an
. the fbi will be involved, but at this point it's very early, and nobody is definitively saying who did that. >> all right. jill, thank you very much. very good detail. we appreciate it. >> swuf state hillary clinton says there is no justification for an attack like this. we are joined by former diplomat jamie ruben on his take on what has to happen now in libya to find justice.

[ technical difficulties ] jomana, i don't know if you can hear me. i'll try to fix that and get back to you. i think we've lost connections with jomana. we're going to get back to her. let me walk over here. the chairman of the house intelligence committee, mike rogers, is standing by. he's got -- he's been fully briefed on what's going on. mr. chairman, thanks very much for coming in. >> thanks, wolf. thanks for having me. >> based on what you have been told and all the information you have what you can share with our viewers here in the unit states and around the world, first of all, who did this? who killed these four americans? >> the actual identity we're still working through the final details of exactly. i think we're getting close to being able to identify

to the state department that there were increasing security concerns in benghazi? the fbi says it is too dangerous to be in benghazi, which is why none of them are there now. is that because the situation has worsened, or was it always too dangerous? >> as we determine the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. that is when i came to that conclusion. as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is ongoing hopefully will determine that. >> about a day after? >> it took a while to get some feedback as to what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a threat intelligence reporting back -- eight to read -- there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups were seeking to coalesce, but there was not anything specific, and certainly not anything specific to the consulate that i am aware of. as far as the risks of the fbi reported, you really would have to ask them why they made that determination. >> did you make the state department awa
took place in our office about four weeks ago, which the fbi is continuing to investigate as an act of domestic terrorism. i would like to mention the investigating agencies and professional and -- professional and very helpful. i am not sure the gravity of what happened or almost happened on august 15 was fully captured in the reporting immediately following the event. more importantly, i think this is a moment for all of us to understand the responsibility we have as we advocate for causes to which we are all committed. when the shooter entered our building at approximately 10:45 a.m., he placed his backpack down in front of the security desk. leo was temporarily manning that desk. leo thought to assist him, and the assailants reached into his backpack and pulled out a 9 millimeter pistol. in the ensuing few seconds, three rounds were fired. as the fbi has reconstructed it, the first bullet, which struck the elevator control panel in the lobby, was just a few inches above leo's head as he ducked. uck, e not remembered to deat he would have been struck right in the head. the second
this thing back under control. megyn: there was an fbi briefing this morning where the homeland security department warned that the united states could be attacked in the wake of all this dread what can you tell us about that? remapped i think it is far too early to tell. i don't think we have anything concrete. there is going to be violence in the united states, we don't have any proof. it's the logical caution, knowing how certain groups are trying to fan these flames and cause trouble for us and our allies overseas. megyn: mr. chairman, thank you so much for your time. we appreciate it. i want to let all of our viewers know that the chairman will be on fox news sunday. this sunday with chris wallace. he will give chairman wallace roger is rogers the time he deserves for an interview. ben bernanke's plan to fix the economy and skeptics. we will have that just ahead. plus, the shadow of the iranian hostage crisis looming over the turmoil in the islamic world. former president jimmy carter saying that handling should be an example for president obama to follow. we will talk to him about
the ambassador, but three other people. how do we get in there and do that? >> we get if there through fbi, counter terrorism teams, intelligence liaison teams, all of the liaison with the security personnel. but these destroyers are indicators we're prepared to take action. >> okay. let's move on now. i want to talk to you about this as we see the region there. a different subject. we now have the two aircraft carriers there near the persian gulf. we have the eisenhower, the enterprise. so should president barack obama give the order to strike iranian nuclear targets, these assets are there and can be quickly moved. >> they can. and i mean, they don't have to be moved very far. >> right. >> because these assets have a tremendous reach. but in addition, there's lots of other assets in other places that can quickly come in, reinforce, use land based areas and continue the fight. we have a reach from the continental united states with certain fast assets assets nonnuclear that will reach from platforms like diego garcia with long-range aviation and used in afghanistan and lots of things to c
there is ongoing investigation and more details will come out after it wraps up. we learned yesterday not one fbi agent has stepped foot in fwauz gauze in the 17 days since the attack because things are too dangerous. u.s. officials internally labeled the deadly raid on the consulate within a day so they could unlook military force it fight the terrorists. administration is stalled and defending their decision to initially deny what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack with press secretary jay carney saying yesterday every step of the way the information that we have provided to you and the general public about the attack in benghazi has been based on the best intelligence we've had and the assessments of our intelligence community. carney also told reporters even though the president still not publicly called this a terrorist attack, since he is are obama's spokesman, and he gave it that label we should all know what the commander-in-chief thinks it was. bill: so now we're hearing from democrats who demand answers from the administration. what are they saying, peter? >> reporter: 10 democ

of mine, fbi agent, the media does not think so. who is supposed to stand up for these guys? you know what i am staying? host: how do you think the administration handled libya? guest: let me just say, i have worked for both republican and democratic administrations. i really think that it is unfair to level such a criticism of president obama. he has been a very strong leader on protecting this country, as president bush was. both presidents have put the security of the american people as job number one, as they should. they have both been strong in that area, it is unfair. libya was a tragic event. ambassador stephens died two weeks ago today. the responsibility for guarding our embassies in conflict overseas, there is not an american military protecting our embassies. it is the host country that provides perimeter security around different establishments. so, let us down? in cairo? the egyptian government did not have enough security to run the embassy, which is why the crowd went over the wall. it was the libyans who led us down in been gauzy, when -- benghazi, when ambassador stevens
heard bad information about the guy -- fbi agent who was tortured and other things happened to him. the bulk is on his hands. but the media doesn't think so. they protect him every time they can. i mean, who is supposed to stand up for the guys? you know what i'm saying? >> host: let's to go to nicholas burns. let's see how you think the administration handledded libya. >> guest: i have worked for republican and democratic administrations. i think it's unfair to level such a criticism in president obama. he has been a very strong leader on protecting this country as president bush was. and i think both presidents, since 9/11, have put security of the american people, our homeland security as job number one as they should. and they have both been strong in the area. it's unfair to assert that president obama has let down the guard. libya was a triple tragic event. he died two weeks ago today along with the three of the colleagues. the responsibility for guarding our embassy overseas is not the -- we don't have american military protecting our embassy. it's the host country that prov
next year. i guarantee you. but doing it across the board, cuts into f.b.i., it cuts into our defense, it cuts into border patrol, it cuts into the basics and the heart of what we're doing and we cannot do that. the house passed a very specific plan for dealing with this last may. it is complete for us. now it's time for the senate to actually do their job and it's time for the president to send that out over to us. with that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman from new jersey. mr. garrett: madam speaker, at this time i yield to a third gentleman from california, over here, the gentleman from california, four minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california four four -- r four minutes. >> thank you. thought i'd fool you. go to the left. it fools a lot of people. mr. speaker, i rise in support obviously of h.r. 6365, the national security and job protection act. do we need any more evidence that recent events in egypt and libya, than to oppose these d
, mr. speaker, who served in the f.b.i. and federal prosecutors and in the military, they support it. e democrat-led house passed this bill in 2008 with former speaker pelosi giving a glowing speech extolling the virtues of the underlying bill and excourting her colleagues about the necessity of passing it. and all of this happened, mr. speaker, because intelligence is the lifeblood of our ability to defend ourselve it happened, mr. speaker, because this bill has nothing to do with americans on american soil. it happened in the past, mr. speaker. because this provides protecons for americans who are traveling abroad. it passed because there is ple oversight. it passed because it has the needed checks and balances between the legislative branch and the executive branch and the judicial branch. so why the opposition, mr. speaker? how can you explain supporting something when ms. pelosi had the gavel but you can't support it when mr. boehner has the gavel? and what i want to do, mr. speaker, just for today, just for today is let's put down the red herrings and the straw arguments and the m
